DJI Mavic 3 Classic Features

The Mavic 3 Classic is a toned-down version of the Mavic 3. It packs a 20-megapixel 4/3 CMOS camera module with Hasselblad branding. It shoots photos and videos in 12-bit RAW and can shoot videos at 5.1K resolution (5,120 x 2,700) with 50 frames per second. Besides that, it can shoot in other modes as well such as 4K videos at 60FPS, and 1080p videos at 60FPS.

The Mavic 3 Classis uses the same O3+ technology that we have seen on the Mavic 3. It lets you shoot 1080p/60fps videos from up to 15km distance with a low latency of 120ms. It can last for up to 46 minutes on a single charge. It takes approx 96 minutes to charge with the DJI 65W portable charger.

To avoid obstacles, it has a bunch of sensors and also packs an AirSense ADS-B receiver that warns the pilot of a nearby airplane. It has 8GB of internal space out of which 100MB will be reserved for the system. You can expand it up to 256GB using an external microSD card.

DJI has added a new feature on the Mavic 3 Classic which it calls the Cruise Control feature. It minimises the camera shake which is caused by the fast movement of the drone to capture better pictures and videos. It has night mode to capture better pictures in low-light conditions.

The pictures captured by the drone can be transferred to a smartphone over Wi-Fi 6 without a remote controller.
